Crop Treat Bags

Well I was supposed to go to a crop recently & I ended up 
out of town to watch my son's play off Hockey games.

I was sad to miss my friends, but they are a great bunch 
an understood that these games were not something
 that would come around again soon.
I am so glad I did, was the first time since Christmas 
all three of my kids were together!

Can't imagine life without these crazies!
Also cant waite to have them all under one roof again!

Haven't had a picture of me up in awhile - 
this is myself & mt Husband with the oldest

these two have never been fighting sibling, 
they just did their own thing, 
but since Garett left they do talk more & have grown Closer.

well good thing I went to watch -
The two games after i left they captured the cup in a sweep! and are headed 
to the Trenton Ontario to play in the Dudley Hewitt Cup
& you bet I will be right there watching those games as well!


Back the the original topic!!
Here are the cute little spring Treat bags for crop.
We usually all make up little bags or boxes and exchange them.
Mine contained spring items and colours, forgot to take a picture of That!!



Well Hope you have an amazing Weekend!!

I am really trying to use up the stash and create with all of fit.  
No more holding onto that one amazing paper cause its Too pretty!
Just grab a kit & create!

So far so good!

With that being said I love to create from sketches!
I draw them out as dsee the items I should have, they move & morph,
but I think a great sketch is one that gets your to be creative!

Say Cheese Mini Album Continued

And here we do with even more Disney pages.

I truly love the Say Cheese line from Simple Stories.
I live the cards meant for the project life style books.
I add them in my layouts and add, as you have seen glossy accents, 
rhinestones & more.



Its hard to see in this picture but I have added glossy accents to this one,
ans the Goofy paperclip adds a bit of wight.


Ok so - back story - one of Garetts friends looks just like this boy.
as soon as we saw the character from the popular movie up - I thought 
OMG there's Chunger!

I like the sides of this page, I came like this, 
it looks like a postage stamp.



here is another nail polish painted buttons! 
they look so good and Glossy!


 Parade layouts are always a challenge - so many pictures and not the best pictures usually.

Another half page, I layered in on black to close in the word.


That brings us to the end of book ONE of TWO.

It is quite think, I am glad I did two books, 
and the second trip will be enough to fill the second book.

Here is the cover that needs to be decorated still.

Thanks for checking out my Mini Album - i will be loading the next book soon.
I am thinking that I should just get to it at the next crop.

Leave a comment & I would love to return it & see what you 
are all up to in your creative spaces.

Disney, Say Cheese Mini Simple Stories Album Continued

Well here we go again - 
another batch of Disney pages 
from the Simple Stories Album for my daughter.



 this picture tuned out amazing!!
It was just a quick snapshot with my iphone.

 All of these rhinestones were put on one at a time 
to jazz up a card, I see one out of place, 
but that's just me!






 here's more of the glossy accents on items to make them pop.

I think its all of the little details in this book that I like the most.
I have altered several pages and accents.

Well there is more to come - stop back next week!


adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
